I am the youngest daughter of Horace Lindrum, a past World Champion Snooker player.
Walter was my Great Uncle and Godfather. Dolly was my second cousin and Godmother.
I was christened Tam and still have a copy of my commemorative certificate along with the Silver Christening cup from Dolly and Walter, which I must confess I need to clean.
Aunty Dolly rarely left Melbourne however she attended my first wedding in Narrabeen NSW, as well as My Dads funeral in 1972.
I particularly love the photo of me dancing with Bill Ellis, Aunty Dolly’s one and only husband, at their wedding where I was the flower girl. Aunty Dolly had many boyfriends and I had many uncles growing up, but her final resting place is together with Uncle Bill after we lost her on the 10th of January 2019.
Aunty Dolly and I shared a close relationship because of our love of animals and reminiscing family stories over a cup of tea and slice of cake, and when I couldn’t be in Melbourne, we spoke every Saturday at 10am. I miss her immensely.
